Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Butter
About 4 dozen Milk Chocolate Drops (I used Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Melts)
Additional granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda and baking powder together and set aside.
In a larger bowl or mixer, cream together the sugars, peanut butter and butter until smooth.
Add in the egg, until well incorporated.
Remember the additional sugar, add it in a small bowl.
Shape the dough into 1 inch balls. I use the small ice cream scoop. Roll balls in the granulated sugar.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light brown, (I baked them for 8 minutes).
Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly place a milk chocolate drop in the center of the cookie, place back in the oven for an additional minute (1 minute). This step will help the chocolate to melt beautifully.
Place on a wire rack and let cool completely.
Makes from 4 to 5 dozen cookies.
Enjoy and Share!
